I'm having a tough time picturing Boetsch at MW. He wasn't exactly a lean LHW but I don't know. Maybe he'll actually be able to win consistently in this division. I could see him pulling a Rivera and swarming Grove with punches until he drops but I don't know. This fight is hard to pick. I'll go with Grove by decision, although I don't want to.

Boetsch's size and power may give Mr. Grove more than he bargained for. If Kendall gets hit hard a few times he will be toast. If.

Boetsch is too slow to even hit Kendall and Grove will have that height on him. Grove by a UD or maybe a sub/late tko, like doesnt get the sub he tries for but ends up GnPing him.
